    We experienced problems with the bathroom and it wasn't fixed throughout our stay. The décor is nice and cozy and the location is perfect. The staff at the pool bar wasn't very kind, we didn't feel welcome.

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea about parking. I used UBER for my entire trip. It was extremely cost effective and user friendly.

    No free parking nearby. $47 per hour valet parking on premises. $15 per 24 hours at 8th and K street parking garage is the cheapest nearby parking. No in and out privileges.
